Motorcyclist Rescued From Under Car Impatient To Ride Again

Yesterday, at the suburban Salt Lake City hospital where he was recovering, Brandon Wright, the biker who was pulled from beneath a burning car lifted by bystanders, thanked his rescuers that he called heroes, stated that he is crying his burned motorcycle and that he would not give up riding. “I rode that thing 95 percent of the time,” he said. “It’s just who I am. I love it. I started crying when I saw my bike, which I know is ridiculous but I did. I’ll absolutely be back on two wheels.” Wright, a 21-year old student at Utah State University suffered a fracture in his right leg and burns on his left leg but no damage to his head. In this video, he speaks from his hospital bed…

    Was the guy in the suit the driver? If so he acted as he could care less that he almost took a life and he didn’t even help he just stood around looking bored. Brandon get a good lawyer because that video will hang him if he is the driver.

    If the guy would like to ride a Victory – I’d be happy to loan him one for a year. It looked like a cafe racer to me.

    I understand from a TV report (suspect always) that the driver indeed was one of the crew who helped pick up the car.

    Glad that he wants to keep riding – but I groaned when I heard “Had to lay ‘er down”. I’m pretty sure rubber has a better coeffecient of friction than aluminum or skin. Glad he’s a rider first. I hope that when he gets back on he tries a track day or advanced riding school – and that the person driving that BMW will spread the word to pay attention to riders – failure to yield is a crime.

    Bob, the man in the suit was the driver and it’s called SHOCK! I hold the accident against him, but not his in-actions after. As I said, shock, and it’s a powerful thing.

    Speedy recovery to Brandon. He’s got the bite of a true rider.
